Read in September, 2010

This was a very enjoyable partially bawdy book. I really had no idea of the author's comedy chops when I began it. Apparently she appeared on Strangers with Candy and she is married to Andy Richter. This book is very similiar in style and content to David Sedaris (there are five children in Sarah's family as well) and Haven Kimmel's memoir "A Girl Named Zippy." Worthwhile as a quick, fun read when your in the mood for some dysfunctional family stories.
